.....  Finally overlay the existing liner with a new one.  Absolutely no point in removing the existing one.


See original post

 ... other than to get rid of the 'grass roots' which, having penetrated the first liner will probably penetrate the new one

Yes, plant up some of the baby 'spiders' -  detach them from the parent plant leaving a longish stem and float the spiders in some water - they'll send out roots and then you can pot them up.

Hello again - out of the dentist's by 11.10 -  I'd parked at John Lewis so bought some wool for a jumper for Wonky and got my parking ticket stamped so that only cost me £1 - now I'm just drinking a coffee and waiting for OH to change his shoes then we're off out for the day ... see you later folks 

Planting now

I'd be perfectly happy planting most of those now as long as the soil's not waterlogged.


What sort of cyclamen?

Welcome aboard Slum 


I'm really enjoying watching the transformation - I used to live in a similar very rural spot - brings back some great memories ... Looking forward to your next installment

But what would you do about the holes?  


Are you sure that the grass has pierced the liner and isn't just spreading across the surface and rooting down into the sludge?

Obelixx - I keep a bottle of Vermouth handy for sweating down onions or adding to a recipe which needs some alcohol but I don't have any leftover wine (who does?) and I don't want to open a fresh bottle.

That's a good thought Berghill - particularly as the poster says there's a lot on the roots - although I've never seen the waxy stuff coming to the surface as in his photo - but then I've never seen a really bad infestation ... fingers crossed.


I'd like to know what the plant is - it looks very much like a daffodil to me, from what we can see .........  a bulb of some sort anyway, so likely to die down and regrow each year

Good luck BL - hope you get a diagnosis and better still, a plan of action 


Sounds like you and I have a similar problem.  We'll have to give it a name - that well known condition - Forkers' Shoulder
